Hi Suchit, You have well captured the girl in traditional dress, the thika here adds much more color to image along with lovely saree, she has got a wonderful eyes, a bit smile would have made it much more better

Thanks Praveen, about the smile, I didn't know her from before and thus had very little time to make the "connect". Your observation however, is valid.

Suchit its a nice picture of this Maharashtrian girl.... The clarity and contrast are good.. But the background is somewhat disturbing due to the bokeh.. expecially the white bokeh areas...

a Fine portrait, the the white spots in the background are very disturbing to me. Good sharpness and fine colours at the girl. Good eye contact and pose.

Thank you Jan, as I replied to Michal below, this was not a planned shoot.

Fine and natural expression on face. Good eyes contact. Good portrait work. However there is bright area on the left side in background as well as this tree in background is situtaed close to the head, it is a pity. I think that I would prefer to try to make this photo in the other place. Regards, Michal.

While your point is valid, Michal, this was not a planned shoot. They were preparing for a dance rehearsal and I happened to be there for another reason and decided to take a few pictures.
